Punk band The Venomous Pinks gave audiences another preview of its new album this week.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Apothecary Ailment‘ and its companion video Thursday. The song and its video are the latest from the band’s forthcoming album, Vita Mors, which is scheduled for release June 3 through SBAM Records. The band debuted the record’s debut single, ‘No Rules‘ and its video last month.

The Venomous Pinks’ debut album is preceded by its EP, I Want You, which was released in 2020. The record produced the single, ‘I Really Don’t Care‘.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Apothecary Ailment’ is another straight forward, guitar-driven surf/skate punk style composition from the band. It will appeal easily to fans of the likes of Pennywise, Counterpunch, and Chaser what with that familiar sound and style.

Singer/guitarist Drea Doll talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“‘Apothecary Ailment’ is a track about how consuming the cycle of addiction can be,” Doll said. “I witnessed someone close to me struggle with severe addiction. It was a matter of life or death. The lyrics are a plea for them to choose life. I’ve had my own personal battles over the years, and facing one’s demons is never easy.

The video for the band’s new single finds the band out in the desert, performing its new single as the sun sets.

Doll talked about the presentation in her statement.

“For the video, we escape to the beautiful landscape near the lost Dutchman park in Apache Junction, AZ. Since this is our first album, it was important for us to show the world our roots and where we grew up.”

The band’s schedule with the groups is scheduled to launch June 8 in Boston, MA and to run through June 19 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. It also features stops in cities, such as Atlanta, GA; Louisville, KY and Nashville, TN.

Punk band The Venomous Pinks debuted its new single and video this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘No Rules‘ and its video Thursday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming debut album, Vita Mors, which is scheduled for release June 3 through SBAM Records.

The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single is a catchy three minute-plus composition. The vocal harmonies and the instrumentation makes the song a work that will appeal to any punk rock purist.

The song’s lyrical theme centers on the all too familiar topic of a broken relationship, according to singer/guitarist Drea Doll.

“‘No Rules’ is a scorned love letter in song form that attempts to break the vicious cycle of a toxic relationship,” Doll said. “It was a fun track to record, because regardless of what stage you are at in life, everyone can relate to a little heartbreak.”

Doll also talked about the song’s video.

“We are collaborating again with director Alexander Thomas to create the video,” she said. “I’m stoked, because we were taping at The Pinks old stomping grounds, The Yucca Tap Room. The venue is an Arizona punk rock staple, and we really came into our own as a band on that stage – so it’s only fitting.”

The video features the band on stage in the performance space as two women sit at a bar inside, watching the performance. Audiences will also appreciate that the unidentified bartender featured in the video is sporting a Chaser t-shirt. Chaser is a well-known punk band in its own right.

In other news, The Venomous Pinks are scheduled to perform live in late May at the Pouzza Fest 10 in Montreal, Quebec. They will join the likes of Propaghandi, Cloud Nothings, Belvedere, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, and War on Women for the festival.

The Venomous Pinks’ debut album is preceded by its EP, I Want You, which was released in 2020. The record produced the single, ‘I Really Don’t Care‘.

The Venomous Pinks Debuts ‘I Really Don’t Care’ Video

Punk band The Venomous Pinks debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its new single “I Really Don’t Care‘ Friday.  The video features the band as the performing act in the infamous prom scene from United Artists/Red Bank Films’ classic 1977 movie Carrie.

The infamous scene is re-enacted in the video for the nearly three-minute song, complete with its star starting a fire in the high school gym through her telekinetic powers.  In between, the band performs its new song, highlighting what the young woman must have felt.

The song’s musical arrangement is a full-on punk composition that the genre’s purist audiences will appreciate.  Its lyrical theme is taken from a real-life incident involving bassist Gaby Kaos.

Kaos discussed the inspiration behind the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview, noting it came from her being in a mentally abusive relationship.

“My boyfriend at the time was really controlling and did not believe in my dreams of becoming a musician because he let his aspirations fall by the wayside,” she said.  “I found myself at a crossroads, and decided to leave him to stay true to my music.”

“Like other bands, we’ve been dealt with negative backlash over the years, and this track really drives home that we ultimately ‘really don’t care’ about the negativity,” she added. Nothing will stop us from accomplishing our goals.”

‘I Really Don’t Care’ is featured in The Venomous Pinks’ EP I Want You.  The EP is available to stream and download here.
